Head Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents in Chicago

head injuriesThe human brain is the most complex organism ever discovered, and in certain ways it is one of the most robust. Although the skull operates as a natural helmet, a brain injury can still occur when the force of impact is enough to counteract the skull’s shock absorber effect. The results can be frightening, permanent, and life-shattering.

Nobody can rewrite the past to prevent a motorcycle accident from happening in the first place. What Illinois personal injury law can do is compensate you for your injury as far as money is able to accomplish this purpose. Compensation claims don’t enforce themselves, however. You are likely to need the services of a seasoned Chicago motorcycle head injuries accident lawyer for that.

Client Testimonial

“Two years ago, I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet.” – Malman Law Client

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the most common symptoms of a head injury?



The most common symptoms of a head injury are:



  • Loss of consciousness

  • Confusion and disorientation

  • Nausea, with or without vomiting

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness or problems with balance

  • Drowsiness

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia or excess sleep

  • Slurred speech or difficulty with verbal articulation


Head injury symptoms might be delayed until some time after the accident that caused them.

Who can I claim against if my accident was caused by a defective motorcycle part?



Illinois products liability law allows you to file a claim against the manufacturer of the defective part as well as the distributor or anyone else in the part’s chain of distribution. You must prove that the part was defective and unreasonably dangerous at the time it left the manufacturer’s hands. Illinois law recognizes three types of possible defects:



  • Design defects

  • Manufacturing defects

  • Inadequate product warnings


I was hit by a commercial truck. Can I file a claim against the trucking company?



You can do so if the truck driver was an employee rather than an independent contractor. The court decides this issue, not the trucking company. Most commercial truckers are considered independent contractors, however. Even if the driver was an independent contractor, you can claim against the trucking company for its own negligence (overloading, for example).

What is the minimum auto liability insurance required in Illinois?



The minimum insurance coverage allowed for Illinois motorists is:



  • $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident personal injury liability

  • $20,000 property damage liability

  • $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident uninsured motorist coverage
